Robert (Bob) Speer

Bob has been a relentless and invaluable volunteer of George Jeffrey Children's Centre for many years.  Since 1999, Bob has served as Chair and President of the Centre's Board of Directors.  In addition to this, in 2005, when the Centre realized the need to form a Foundation to steer its fundraising efforts for its newly constructed building, Bob also volunteered for and was elected to the position of Chair of the George Jeffrey Children's Foundation Board of $4.5 million that was needed to fund construction of the Centre's new facility.  Between the two boards, Bob has served on the Finance Committee, Special Events Committees.  Bob is a familiar face to staff and clients of the Centre.  He is always involved in the planning of events and subsequently as a volunteer at these events.  Bob is a passionate spokesperson and advocate for the Centre and the Foundation.  Bob has volunteered countless hours of his time with George Jeffrey Children's Centre and George Jeffrey Children's Foundation.  Whenever he speaks about the Centre, his enthusiasm and appreciation for the Centre's purpose and efforts are obvious.  The Centre and Foundation could not ask for a more passionate and dedicated supporter and advocate.
